Navy Detailing by NEC not Rate and Paygrade Starting Soon!

From NavyTimes, read whole article here: NEC-based detailing starts next year

The way all sailors are assigned to ships and squadrons is set to undergo a massive overhaul. As early as next year, your next job assignment will be based on the special skills you hold — not on your rating and paygrade.

The plan, officials say, is a critical step in reworking the Navy’s enlisted rating structure. And until the new detailing structure is in place, most planned rating mergers have been put on hold.

That’s because, officials say, in a smaller, post-merger Navy with broad ratings or career fields, detailing a sailor based only on a vague rating and paygrade won’t work and could cause problems in the fleet if underqualified sailors show up on the quarterdeck.

It will be interesting to see how this works out, it will be extremely interesting as folks are trained by “RATE AND PAYGRADE” for C-Schools etc. I personally don’t see how this can work in the Medical side of the house especially when we serve with the Marine Corps??

What do you think?
